Hi Loic,

I am looking for a GRUB based implementation. I also need to include my own kernel version. Can you please let me know where I can find the generic device tarball for amd64.

Is your boot GRUB or U-Boot? If GRUB, above image or more recently generated "generic" image should work. If U-Boot, I suggest you build an OEM snap just like this sample that Sergio wrote:

You can probably reuse the generic device tarball for amd64 (unless you need a specific kernel?).

Hello folks,

I am looking for documentation/instructions to build a custom Ubuntu core image. For example, I see following image in current alpha release train. How do I build such an image from first principles.


I want to port Ubuntu core to the x86 based hardware that I am working with. Currently I am running Ubuntu Trusty based image on it and would want to run Ubuntu snappy core on the same.

I was able to see instructions for beaglebone. I need something similar for amd64 image.
